Nano 101: Introduction to Nanotechnology
101—Introduction to Nanotechnology
Friday, September 18
HTC Conference Center
The International Organization of Standards defines Nanotechnology as the application of scientific knowledge to control and use matter at the nanoscale, where size related phenomena and processes may occur. This short course is designed to take the complex scientific arena that is nanotechnology and make it accessible to the business community and the general public.
You will learn what it means to be ‘nano’ and why scientists say nano is so revolutionary, as well as a brief history of nanotechnology, the current state of nanotechnology research and applications, and where nanotechnology will take us in the next 5 to 50 years. This first of two sessions will concentrate on physical nanotechnology, nanomaterials, and nano in aerospace, energy and electronics.
